Christopher “Copper” Kelley has been around copper smithing since a young age and started his business as a hobby. As this business grew, he wanted to make it bigger and better, and explored some new techniques in copper smithing. This led him to start TIG welding, which allowed him to move from stainless to copper. Christopher has a master’s certificate in three trades. He has been featured on a few of Discovery Channel shows, such as National Geographic’s “Kal Penn’s The Big Picture” and “Moonshiners”. PBS has also featured him in “The Craftsman’s Legacy”. “Copper” Kelley is an energetic and experienced copper smith with a world-renowned business.
